I'm surprised that you walked out of the Soldier Field show. I was at that one, and though it wasn't the best of June '91, it had some awfully good parts. The Shakedown in the number two spot was absolutely smokin'. The first set was pretty hot all-around actually, capped by a killer LIG.

But, I can understand being disappointed by the beginning of set 2. Foolish to open was pretty disjointed -- with flubbed lyrics, etc.. Crazy was typically Crazy, but from Playin on, this was a hot second set. Great Terrapin, Dark Star jam out of space, and the Black Peter was sensational.

Anyway, my 2 cents.. Never walked out of a show based on performance. I did leave the 3/18/91 Cap Center show early, though, after my buddy got kicked out. Still regret that.
